This very interesting question about the English of lawyers was posted in Jose Carillo’s English Forum recently by member BonRuiz:

“I hope you can enlighten me on why legal documents and contracts use too many unnecessary words that are not direct to the point and are hard to understand. Is this a lawyer’s standard procedure so only he can interpret and make money out of them?”
